Ani’s Thai Spring Rolls with Almond Dipping Sauce

In this video, I'll show you how easy it is to make delicious, nutritious Thai Spring Rolls with an Almond Dipping Sauce. My yummy, super healthy, raw food version of a peanut inspired sauce is made using kaffir lime leaves, chilies, and almonds. The rolls are made by filling collard leaves with julienne zucchini, mung bean sprouts, and fresh herbs like cilantro, mint, and basil.

Ani at Erewhon in LA with Kate Magic

Watch video: 8 min, 15 sec Kate Magic was visiting from the UK last fall. In this video, you can watch our visit to Erewhon Natural Foods in the heart of Los Angeles, CA. I believe Erewhon was SoCal's first natural food market and co-op. It's full of the healthiest foods, cookbooks, natural eco green cleaning products, and lots more. Rooted in macrobiotics, they have a great book selection too. Erewhon offers a huge array of raw food products in their store, it's probably the largest raw selection in the world. The raw food goodies take up 2 full isles, end caps, plus a refrigerated section. It's always a treat to peruse the isles to see what new raw food products have hit the marketplace. Kate and I enjoyed a lovely day playing around West Hollywood. We started out at lunch eating delicious collard roll wraps, then stopped into Trashy Lingerie next door. Since raw foods keep me at my ideal weight, makes my skin smooth and clear, and helps me build a lean, strong body, it makes shopping for and wearing lingerie easier. Next, we visited a thrift store, which is my favorite way to shop. It's recycled fashion, eco, green, good for our environment, and it's true that one person's trash can be another person's treasure. Finally, we then made it over to Erewhon. Kate will be back in LA in August this year. I look forward to continuing our SoCal adventures together!

For the Love of Durian

I'm in love with durian. I love the flavor, texture, and yup, even the scent. So, I flew myself to the other side of our planet, all the way to beautiful Bali, Indonesia, to visit during their 2 month durian season. There, I was able to enjoy a fresh durian daily, and even visited a durian farm where I ate fresh durian straight off the tree. This was the highlight of almost all my gastronomical adventures in life. Many people in the USA have not yet seen or tried durian fruit. So, I shot this video in Seminyak, on the West Coast of Bali, as an introduction to the King of Fruit. I hope this video may encourage you to give this delectable fruit a try.

Ani on The View from the Bay

I was a returning guest on The View from the Bay on Friday, Nov 13th. I love hosts Spencer Christian and Janelle Wang. I showed them how easy it is to make my famous raw vegan Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cake, from “Ani’s Raw Food Desserts“. Spencer Christian, host, and me on set before the live show. A big inspiration to me. Spencer was the weatherman on Good Morning America, and had his own wine show on Food Network. The lovely Janelle Wang. This fellow Asian American woman is a huge inspiration to me!! Spencer loves vegan raw foods. You can tell he walks a healthy lifestyle by how great he looks.
